Flag Retirement at Camp Currier

March 11-13 Cub Scout Pack 186 from Southaven, MS and Pack 234 from Olive Branch, MS camped at Camp Currier.  Unknown to both packs, we both planned Flag Retirements for our Saturday evening campfires.  With the help from Dennis Johnston, Ranger at Camp Currier, and his support staff both packs joined together for our evening Flag Retirement around a newly built bonfire pit.  Imagine a clear night filled with stars from the heavens, including a moon halo, playing in the background by Pack 186 the musical piece “Taps” and the retirement of 32 flags, it was a night to remember.
Pack 234 saved the grommets and made necklaces decorated with red, white and blue beads as a reminder of a great weekend.
